XOR: Conic Sections LP

Commissioned for an exhibit in Miami’s ArtCenter South Florida, this album by Heinrich Mueller (Drexciya, Dopplereffekt) is a continuous work made up of weightless synth sequences and detached melodies. It’s every bit as scientific and clinical as Mueller’s post-Drexciya work has been, but there’s still human sentiments behind the sparkling melodies of pieces like “Ellipse”. It definitely nails a feeling of being trapped in space and longing for any type of connection to anyone, but not in an overbearingly gloomy way. This isn’t as immediate as his most well-known work, but it does reveal itself the more you listen, and of course it’s essential if you’re like me and you need to own everything he and/or James Stinson have ever released.
